Finally all in!














Tuned it today with the DD & CC-1's

Used the -5 db tracks & crossed at 80 & 70 high/mid and sub respectively, initial listening sounds awesome but like the high/mid's could use the 0db & the sub could've used the -10db

I have a question for all the radio gods here! Actually not for my ranger, but instead for my can am maverick I just bought. I will be installing a stereo system on it. I'll be doing 4 wake tower kicker speakers (affordable for me) rated 50rms a piece and are all 4 ohm. The amp I'm looking to get is a jl audio hx series 300/1 amp. 1 channel 160rms 4 ohms, 300rms 2 ohms. How would I go about wiring 4 speakers to run off 1 channel amp? The head unit will be a wetsounds rocker switch Bluetooth controller. The speakers will be in 2 housings that each will hold 2 speakers. Just have to figure wiring out.

Why not just get the 4ch. in that same style? The HX 280/4

You'll lose stereo seperation with that 300/1 (if it matters) as it is a mono design.

If you're set on the 300/1 i'd wire each pair up to 8 ohm then the two pairs back down to 4 ohm.

this with each pair


then this with the two pairs

The problem is the old design 300/1 is much cheaper than the 4 channel. I cannot find the 4 channel in the old design anymore. The 300/1 is $160 where the 4 channel is over $300. So trying to save a little money. And the stereo isn't gonna matter. Being that all 4 speakers will be in the back side by side

Ah, i see.

I'd just wire it the the way shown in those two diagrams i put up then.

That'll be a nice setup from those links you posted

Ok that should work fine. 160rms should be plenty.

No subwoofer though?



You could so look at the Alpine KTP-445U and keep the stereo configuration.

I can vouch for that amp, it works good.

Possibly in the future. They make a box for under the glove box for a 10. Think a 10 ran by another 300/1 would be good

Is that amp waterproof? The jl audio one is. Well is water resistant. Jl audio actually released the amp at a party and played music through it for days. As the amp had a waterfall type thing running over it. For days straight with no issues. I need something that can get wet, being it will be in a side by side. It will be mounted in the glove box.

AFAIK it isn't water resistant, didn't think about that part before i suggested it.

That sounds like a cool way for a practical demo, plus they wouldn't have to worry about any thermal issues even if they were pushing it LOL.

Couple of short video's of the HST-15 MKII in action.

Used a very small piece of electrical tape over the mic that's beside the camera lens in my iphone 6+ to help with distortion and damn that work's pretty good IMO.




Not sure if they'll get flagged for copyright but enjoy until then!
